There’s no doubt about it; I’m an absolute sucker for gorgeous free stock photos.
But, who isn’t?
Finding free feminine stock photos can be a daunting task if you don’t know where to look.
Especially if you’re new to the blogging world.
I know I didn’t have a clue where to start ( like countless other things about blogging!) So it took me some time to find stock photos that meshed perfectly with my brand – and were also stylish and feminine.
Sites like Pixabay are an excellent start – but every blogger on the web uses those.
I needed more.
I needed an edge.
Like I’m sure you do too!
The photos I’d find as a new blogger in 2016 were what every other blogger was using, and I found it challenging to use those images on Pinterest, or social media sites.
I enjoy myself some styled desktop images with gleaming Macs, marble backgrounds, feminine colors, among others.
Since then, I have found LOADS of dazzling stock photos. And guess what? They didn’t break the bank.
There are copious amounts of eye-catching images floating around on the internet.
BUT, those images are 100% illegal to use on your blog or website without permission. Hence the need for free stock photos, that are copyright-free.
If you’re unfamiliar with why you need to find free stock photo sites (or purchase stock photos) in the first place, head on over to this post to get the low-down on the crucial blogging laws you must know before you start a new blog.
Then head back to this post to score your stunning free stock photos for girl bosses and creative entrepreneurs.

It took me forever to locate the types of stock photos that fit my branding, were feminine, and of course, free. Which is why I’ve put together this list. To hopefully help new bloggers save the time! 🙂
I do enjoy and use free stock images on my blog and for my graphics, but I also know as a blogger or biz owner – you have to invest.
So I’ve invested in a few affordable stock photo memberships.
It’s an excellent way to support other creative entrepreneurs while scoring some beautiful images in return.
I hope you have found some gorgeous, dazzling, free stock photos from these sources (I know I did!).
